Days after the Advertising Standards Authority revealed that the most-complained-about advertisement of 2006 was the Gay Police Association's infamous 'Bloody Bible' travesty, a Christian activist has won a battle over the GPA's entry on Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia which anyone may edit: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gay_Police_Association
On Wednesday 16th May, Christian Voice activist Tony Bennett inserted three entirely factual paragraphs in the GPA entry. The paragraphs make painful reading for those who are not as other men are, as they record that the ASA came as close as it ever can to calling them a bunch of liars over the preposterous advertisement, which taken as a whole accused Christians of perpetrating a non-existent 74% increase in bloody attacks on homosexuals.Indeed, the ASA asked the GPA to substantiate their claims, and the homosexual upholders of law and order, whose evidence the courts rely on when sending villains to jail, were entirely unable to do so.
A GPA activist swooped at 9.35am on Thursday 17th May 2007 to remove the paragraphs, hopefully not while he should have been working away locking up school children for calling each other's clothing 'gay'. Undeterred, Bennett put the articles back in later that day, and made a few other corrections to the biased GPA entry.Before they are removed again, here are the Bennett paragraphs, recorded for posterity:
In 2006, an advert by the Gay Police Association in The Independent attracted a record number of complaints and was censured by the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA). The GPA advert showed a Bible lying next to a pool of blood, accompanied by the following text: "In the last 12 months, the Gay Police Association has recorded a 74% increase in homophobic incidents, where the sole or primary motivating factor was the religious belief of the perpetrator”. Over 500 separate complaints were made - a record.The ASA upheld three classes of complaints. First, the advert was considered to be “likely to cause offence to those readers who were Christian” and breached Clause 5.1 of the Code of Advertising Practice.
Second, the advert, “by featuring spilled blood prominently, wrongly suggested that all the reported incidents involved physical injury” and breached Clause 7.1 of the Code.
Third, the GPA was unable to substantiate the claims made in the advert - a further breach of the Code, this time of Clause 3.1.The ASA’s actions including ”telling the GPA to ensure future campaigns were not presented in a way that could cause undue offence, reminding them that they should ensure the use of imagery did not send misleading messages to consumers, and asking them to ensure any statistics could be substantiated”.
In their defence, which Bennett allowed them to put up as part of a cease-fire deal, the GPA said that they "refused to provide the ASA with the personal details of those individuals who had suffered faith-based homophobia as this would have breached confidentiality and potentially exposed more gay people to suffering and harm".
But even that is mealy-mouthed dodging and weaving. The GPA could have provided its statistics without the 'personal details' if it had any to back up its claims of a '74% increase in homophobic incidents', the central claim in the advert. It didn't because, frankly, it couldn't.
If the GPA have difficulty separating fact from fiction, perhaps that is because the whole homosexual lifestyle is founded on a lie, on the fiction that homosexual activity is in some way equivalent to Almighty God's institution of heterosexual love and marriage.
Last year, we suggested that the GPA lost their grip on reality partly as a result of our spoof 'True Vision' website. http://www.true-vision.org/
The Wikipedia entry for the GPA also makes reference to an award named after Matthew Windibank, the GPA's founder.Windibank was not a policeman, but a police-employed civilian race relations agitator who committed suicide at the age of 39 in a Brighton hotel room in 1999 because he was 'unlucky in love'. http://archive.theargus.co.uk/1999/4/29/197949.html
Poor Windibank was treading a path familiar to homosexuals, as hope turns to despair in what Quentin Crisp described as the 'vain' search for true love from a real man. Psychologist Dr David Reuben once said homosexuals were 'trying the impossible; solving the puzzle with only half the pieces.' Homosexuals, he said, 'are in a difficult position - condemned eternally to search after what does not exist - after what never existed.' The scandal is that a group of sad, emotionally-disturbed people have been allowed to form a staff association, have had it recognised by the Home Office as official, and have received tens of thousands of pounds of public money to promote their perversion.
